II challenge my clients all the time to challenge themselves not to pick! I have seen the damage caused by picking and it can be permanent if you continue. With my own personal battle for years with large cystic acne, one would think I would have major scarring. I don’t do to being as gentle as possible when acne surfaced. I NEVER pick my skin! Why? Because as you do this it leads to spreading of acne and pushing the infection deeper, thus causing scarring that could be beyond repair. The two pics above show 2 different cases. The upper is a young client who became obsessed with the little bumps and made a mountain out of the mole hill. I can say today that she has milky soft smooth amazing skin because she stopped picking! The lower picture is an older client who hasn’t been able to stop for over 20 years and the damage is deep and can never be repaired if she doesn’t stop. Do whatever it takes to leave those pimples alone. I guarantee they will heal 10x faster if you leave them alone. Challenge Yourself for YOU!
